Trump was to play ‘Shark­nado 3’ pres­i­dent

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Jes­sica Chas­mar

Don­ald Trump could have been pres­i­dent two years ago — on the small screen, that is.

Ahead of the up­com­ing pre­miere of “Shark­nado 5: Global Swarm­ing,” a pro­ducer the Syfy net­work’s campy fran­chise told the Hol­ly­wood Re­porter that Mr. Trump was of­fered the cameo in 2015’s “Shark­nado 3: Oh Hell No!”

“The Don­ald said yes,” pro­ducer David Latt told THR. “He was thrilled to be asked.”

But pro­tracted si­lence from Mr. Trump’s lawyers in the fol­low­ing few weeks led pro­duc­ers to of­fer the role to bil­lion­aire en­tre­pre­neur Mark Cuban.

Even­tu­ally Mr. Trump’s at­tor­ney, Michael Co­hen, told pro­duc­ers that his client was se­ri­ously con­sid­er­ing a real-life pres­i­den­tial run, so, Mr. Latt re­called Mr. Co­hen as telling him “this might not be the best time.”
